Description of problem:
sshd from openssh-server-2.5.2p2-5.i386.rpm hangs on the first reboot when
doing a server install(on an Amd5x85). I am guessing it is having trouble
generating the host key. (ctrl-alt-del can still switch to run level 6
and reboot) Fixed by doing a rescue mode and manually start init.d/sshd
to generate the key. Next reboot works fine.
Note: This was a network boot install, Samba and Webserver were selected
during the install.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat 7.1 (bootnet.img)
2. Use a Server install, also select Samba and Webserver
3. After installation, reboot.
Actual Results: Machine will hang on sshd.
Expected Results: sshd should generate the key and continue boot.
Which kind of system do you have? Key generation can take a _long_ while if
your CPU is not fast enough; up to 15 minutes on i386's and the like, I have
This doesn't seem like real bug and reporter not responded to questions.
